Food drive feeds thousands of families
East New York families are benefiting from a food drive thanks to local contractors, developers and organizers.
The food drive, which is sponsored by BRP Construction, is feeding over 1,000 families.
"Working conditions at times are not always easy to keep a job, and income may be varied, so we do need everything we can use in this neighborhood. I thank God for this opportunity for the neighborhood to be blessed," says Maria Young, a food drive visitor.
Bags were being packed and distributed with food that will come in handy for Tuesday's snowstorm.
"It is a small token of appreciation for the community to give them food for the less fortunate," says Rafael Collado, of BRP Construction.
